Yes its cheap and yes you get what you pay for, but the building ouzes old colonial charm and has a great location. The larger rooms upstairs are better then the single ones in the back courtyard. Wifi is hit and miss but the cafe opposite has free wifi.

Our worst experience in India, the staff welcome us coldly, carring just about our money. They treated us like trash, throwing us out of the hotel after our installation when they realised that one of us was indian.They threw us the money back on our face as if it was dirty, threatening us to call the police if we stayed...

If you expect cheap backpacker rooms than you are right. The most rooms are with attached bathroom and ok. On the rooftop are 3 very cheap and small rooms, but they are popular by single travellers and most time busy. Maybe one of the better guesthouses in Kolkata.

A good budget option in the Sudder street area, especially if you arrive late: they have rooms available until late afternoon. There are double rooms with shared or en suite bathroom. The rooms with bathroom on the first floor are brighter and clean and, though they cost more (600 Rs. per night), it's good value in Kolkata.

Right in the heart of Kolkata, Hotel Maria has some of the cheapest rooms around. I had no issues staying here. You get what you pay for at 250 rupees per night. like people have said, the building certainly has character and the staff aren't the friendliest but I wasn't expecting a 5* welcome and concierge service. Perfect for the... More

Building is old and has a lot of character...rooms are okay but bes ate filthy. It is cheap though, and I'd have been happy to stay here longer were it not for the manager being so blatantly rude and blasé about your existence. If you're someone who can feel the atmosphere of a place then you better go elsewhere. Such... More

As mentioned in most reviews, Hotel Maria is best to be avoided. Rooms are dirty and not maintained at all; you should see the mats they use! What's even worse is really the staff, especially the manager - just now when I was on skype down at the lobby, I inquired politely whether he could lower his voice, since I... More

Cheap for kolkata. The staff aren't particularly helpful but I didn't feel offended by them either. The building is huge and looks like it should be in a film. The rooms we stayed in had high ceilings and powerful fans. It is run down and dirty, but I've stayed in worse.

Unfriendly, unapologetically money hungry staff! Not even pretend politeness. Non responsive when you say hello even! Rooms were rotten and enduring very very loud street noise. Stay was made absolutely unpleasant by hotel staff. Many other lovely hotels on Sudder, I would not want such horrible people profitting from me ever again!

Arriving at night to Kolkata Maria was the first guesthouse I found. The location is central Sudder St and they offer off street parking. The Rooms are squalid, dumpy and dank but the high ceilings and fan make it at least barible. I've stayed in worse and It's cheap so I decided I would stay for the length of my... More
